I am rebuilding the 40 foot 1929 cutter "Cresset".
She was built by Gorge Askew in false Creek Vancouver B.C Canada.
She was owned by RVYC members until the 70s, now we are completely restoring her, we have refraimed, replanked and redecked well over half of her and I'm just getting rolling.
Next is the house recalking and then the scary one,that big hunk of cast iron and the bolts that hold it on.
Now this is bad enough on its own but in this case the floor timber bolts are gone too, and that means we need to take the ballast off the boat.
But for now I'm just not going to think about that and and focus my time and energy on making "Cresset" look like a boat again and less like a big pile of lumber.
You can track our progress www.cresset.ca
and feel free to make donations, boat buildings expensive and any thing helps.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
